These school holidays we decided to stay in Sydney but to take a ride on the Rivercat which runs along Parramatta River.
We joined the Rivercat at the start, Parramatta wharf. It was a rather slow journey, the Rivercat is far from a quick ride. It took just over 1 hour and 10 minutes to reach our destination 'King St Wharf Darling Harbour'.
We did get to see lots of sights along the way on the Rivercat and point out different landmarks to the kids.
Once in Darling Harbour, we headed to Darling Quarter for a bite to eat and a play in the playground and waterpark.
At Darling Harbour I liked the park and playing in the water, I tried my best not to wet my clothes but it was lots of fun running through the sprinklers. I also went on the climbing post, but I got stuck at the top and my sister had to climb up and rescue me!
At the playground in Darling Harbour, it was fun as it wasn't all small kids equipment. I really liked going on the Pirate Ship ride that was my first time on it and I couldn't help but smile.
Darling Quarter park is great for kids all ages with so many options for the kids to choose to play on and plenty of space to grab a bite and eat on the grass.
We did go on a cooler day and it was very busy so I cannot even imagine how packed it would get on a hot day and the kids wanting to play in the water.
